Are donkeys allowed at a Mexican Fiesta-Themed wedding at Ocean Coral & Turquesa?

Recommended Posts

Hi everbody who has gotten married or will get married at Ocean Coral & Turquesa!

 

Has any one had a donkey at their wedding at OCT, or are planning on having a donkey?  If so, when was your wedding, or when are you getting married? 

 

I am wondering if OCT permits a donkey to be rented?

 

I am having a Mexican-Fiesta Theme for my wedding and a donkey would work very well along with a Mariachi band.  I know that I can hire the Mariachi band  through the resort, and I plan to do that.   But who do I contact for a donkey to appear for a short while, maybe 45 to 60 minutes?  I know Planner 1 Events is the vendor that OCT deals with, and Planner 1 has donkeys for rental.  I am wondering if anyone has actually rented one for their wedding, and how did it go?

 

Thanks for any info you may have~

Ughhhh...I wanted a donkey sooooooo bad for my fiesta themed wedding...Dang it, I could not find anyone to rent me one. I am not sure if they are allowed, but I LOVE the idea, how fun and festive. I would love to see your wedding and how it turns out!!!

Just in case anyone else is interested in having a donkey at Ocean Coral and Turquesa, I am going to post a response to my own question.  OCT  finally responded to my email, and now  I know the answer.  Ocean Coral And Turquesa Resort does not allow live animals on their property.  Something really wierd, however, is that the WC said she will try to find a "fake donkey" for us and see how much it would cost.  I have never seen a fake donkey, and I don't know what she means -- is it like a deer head mounted on a wall?  How about a stuffed donkey on wheels?  How about a rocking donkey (like a rocking horse) that kids ride on???  Who knows, but I can't wait to see what they come up with. I can't believe that we would have to pay for a fake donkey!

Wow!  I had absolutely no idea that such a thing existed!  Who would have ever thought of a stuffed donkey???   That donkey is a lot better looking than I thought it would be, but in no way would I be willing to pay $ to rent it.  PS: Gotta love those wheels, haha!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
